CSA apologises to CA

South African Officials Under Fire For Posing With Fans Wearing Sonny Bill Williams Masks

Reports suggest that the South African batsmen have complained to umpires about tape on Warner's left hand on the second day of the second Test in Port Elizabeth.

Clive Eksteen and Altaaf Kazi have been ordered to CSA headquarters in Johannesburg for a meeting, and the chances are high that they could lose their jobs.

Two officials from Cricket South Africa are on the verge of being sacked after a photograph emerged that shows them grinning alongside fans wearing "disgraceful" Sonny Bill Williams masks.

In a statement issued on Saturday, Cricket South Africa distanced itself from the action of the officials, marketing manager Clive Eksteen and communications manager Altaaf Kazi.

David and Candice Warner were married in 2015.

According to Fairfax Media, the Australian camp were aware of the masks going into the first day of the Test, and asked that they be banned.

"On behalf of CSA, I extend my honest apologies to the board of Cricket Australia (CA), its officials, team management, players and their families", CSA president Chris Nenzani said in a statement on the weekend.

Following the culprit accepting the guilt, victim's wife hoped that this will send a strong message that hate is never acceptable. Purinton, yelled, "Get out of my country", before shooting Kuchibhotla, who later died from injuries sustained in the attack.

CSA said Eksteen and Kazi were now subject to "internal processes". "On behalf of CSA I extend my honest apologies to the board of Cricket Australia (CA), its officials, team management, players and their families", commented CSA President Chris Nenzani in a CSA statement.

Australian newspaper the Sydney Morning Herald reported that the Australia team was "outraged" by the South African officials apparently condoning the masks.

Warner's wife Candice had a tryst more than 10 years ago with Williams. She is also a model and celebrity TV star.

The allegations are the latest development in what has been a fractious series.

Quinton de Kock's retort to Warner's sledging was to mention Williams and his brief relationship with Warner's wife, at which Warner became angry and violent. Warner was fined 75% of his match fee and earned three demerit points for the incident, later claiming de Kock had made a "vile and disgusting comment", about his wife Candice.

Australia celebrate the wicket of Kagiso Rabada.

"Cricket Australia spoke to Cricket South Africa officials yesterday to express disappointment with this matter and events that unfolded off-field Friday at St George's Park", a CA spokesperson said.
